What do you do when you want to make sweet tea? Do you add more tea…more of the same? No…you add something different. If you want something different, you need to add something different. Someone once said that adding the same ingredient to the mix, but expecting different results, is the definition of insanity. Are you an “insane Christian?” Are you adding the same old ingredients of the world, but expecting godly leadership to flow out of your life? Matthew 5:13-14 declare, “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world….” Godly leaders will be salt and light! What kind of seasoning are you manifesting to the world around you? Are you declaring Jesus (THE Light of the world) to those within your influence? Many a believer has not lived as salt and light of the world, but they bemoan the lack of godly leaders and the lack of godly outcomes in the world around them. May the church cease complaining about having to be different and start living as God has called His children to live! May the believer provide leadership with salt and light that leads to Jesus! Start with a step of victory and come to church this Sunday…I’ll be looking for you!
Living one step at a time,
